Ad hoc wireless networks are growing in popularity and usefulness, however they rely on broadcasting as a fundamental process for routing. Improvements to broadcasting have made ad hoc networks more feasible, but sometimes benefit only specific situations. Delayed intelligence (DI) is proposed as a new load balancing approach where small delays are introduced to allow distributed responsibility delegation. Preliminary results show delayed intelligence, when applied in existing broadcasting methods such as passive clustering, can be used to improve the energy disparity and therefore extend ad hoc network lifetime.
